Transcontinental acquires Robbie Manufacturing
Transcontinental Inc., has acquired Robbie Manufacturing, a Lenexa, Kansas-based on-site packaging manufacturer.

The American company specializes in on-site packaging needs for grocery stores, shrink-wrap packaging of multipack consumer goods, and packaging for food processors. Robbie Manufacturing generated over US$50 million in annual revenues in its most recent fiscal year, and has over 175 staff members on its team.

"This acquisition is great news for the ongoing development of our flexible packaging division, an important area of growth for the Corporation," François Olivier, president and chief executive officer of TC Transcontinental, said.

"The acquisition of Robbie Manufacturing is strategic on two fronts. It allows us to enter into two new packaging niches while also creating opportunities for synergies with our existing facilities nearby. The company shares TC Transcontinental's values and fosters a similar culture, putting their customers at the heart of everything they do. We're pleased to welcome our new employees who will contribute to TC Transcontinental's growth and success."

Transcontinental’s first strategic acquisition in the flexible packaging sector was Capri Packaging in 2014. According to the company, in 2015, it has doubled its revenues in this area since purchasing Ultra Flex Packaging Corp.
